View: Rangers reject bids for Kai Kennedy, club must keep him at all costs

Rangers have reportedly turned down a third bid from West Ham for young attacker Kai Kennedy.

According to The 4th Official, the Premier League club made an offer of £1million for the 19-year-old who’s recently completed his loan move to Dunfermline.

However, West Ham are hell-bent in their pursuit for the left-winger and believe they know at what price the Gers will be willing to part ways with the player.

Must keep him

Kennedy is one for the future and we must do everything we can to keep him.

He may not be ready for the first team yet, but given his performances for the junior teams, he could be kicking on the manager’s door for a first-team berth in a year or two.

Steven Gerrard’s been a fan of the player for a while – waxing his lyrical in late 2019.

Per The Daily Record, he called him a ‘Fabulous little player’.

Selling him wouldn’t be something Gerrard would want as he’s known to be an admirer.

What’s worrying is that if West Ham know at what price we’ll sell, they can keep bidding and unsettling the player before eventually getting their way.

It’s time someone at the club has a word with him regarding his future and explains why he’s better off staying at the Ibrox contractually, and spending next season out on loan to get first-team minutes.

He spent last season out on loan at Inverness Caley Thistle and Raith Rovers and took decisive steps towards making himself first-team ready in the future.

Thus far, we’ve remained firm and turned down every offer that’s come our way and we have to continue to do the same thing if we are to keep our best talents at the club.

We’ll get a better idea in the coming days, but right now our focus must be on retaining his services and sending him out on loan to get regular playing time.
